Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History


Hope Diamond

The Hope Diamond was donated to the Smithsonian by Harry Winston Inc. in 1958.

The mission of the National Museum of Natural History is to investigate, document, and understand the natural world and the role of humans in it. Opened in 1910, Natural History is the largest Smithsonian museum and research facility, and most visited natural history museum in the world. While the Museum does receive some Federal funds, in order to continue the rich tradition of innovative research, exhibitions, and educational outreach, your help is needed today!
